Event Update For 2013-05-20



The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.



A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2013-05-20 - RV bursts into flame, fire spreads to towed pickup truck, both destroyed, on I-70 near Englewood (Ohio):
http://www.wdtn.com/dpp/news/local/montgomery/rv-fire-blocks-westbound-i-70
http://www.whiotv.com/news/news/traffic/vehicle-fire-on-i-70-west-slows-traffic/nXxm4/
 
Quote: "Mangas said the owners reported they had bought the RV and truck new less than a month ago and recently got warranty work done. No one was injured but damages were estimated at $325,000 for the RV and $50,000 for the truck."
 
Note: They were towing the truck, and this was probably a heavy RV too, so that's a lot of mass. The fire broke out in the rear of the RV. That was likely the brakes or tires igniting from an abnormal amount of heat being generated from the brake-friction, caused by hot-burning hydrogen sulfide having been absorbed into the tire rubber and brake pads. This problem is hitting massive vehicles the worst, though no vehicle is immune...
 


2013-05-20 - Home explodes and burns in Westfield (New York):
http://post-journal.com/page/content.detail/id/622521/Home-Explosion.html?nav=5192

Note: They say a gas leak caused this. That's a possibility. But how do they know an explosion didn't CAUSE the gas leak, instead of the reverse? Since there IS no way to know, they DON'T know. They are assuming. Apparenly they haven't noticed just how many homes and businesses have been exploding lately either...

2013-05-20 - Building explodes and burns in West Point (California), fire spreads, 2 boats and RV trailer destroyed too:
http://www.calaverasenterprise.com/news/article_9968427a-c22c-11e2-8bb4-0019bb2963f4.html

2013-05-20 - Massive 6-alarm inferno rages through condo complex at 3 AM in Dallas (Texas), firefighter trapped and killed:
http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Fire-Torches-Dallas-Condos-208104041.html
http://www.newson6.com/story/22298266/firefighter-killed-in-massive-dallas-condo-fire
http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/dallas-firefighter-dies-6-alarm-blaze-article-1.1349154

Quote: "Stanely Wilson, a 28-year veteran of the department, was among about 100 Dallas firefighters who responded to the six-alarm conflagration about 3 AM Monday at three-story apartment complex."

Note: The wee hours are when the atmosphere cools and contracts, which will push any hydrogen sulfide or methane floating in the atmosphere above closer to the ground, making explosions, fires and hydrogen sulfide poisoning events more common during those hours...

2013-05-20 - Cooking oil recycling plant erupts in flame in Stourport-on-Severn (Britain), local evacuations ensue:

Quote: "The Environment Agency were on site very quickly...and they've been on site pumping away some of that waste now so it doesn't leak into the nearby river."

Note: That's near the River Severn, thus the name...

http://www.kfvs12.com/story/22300718/5-killed-when-passenger-van-crashes-in-illinois

Quote: "The blasts happened around 1.30am this morning as a result of a fire that ripped through and completely destroyed the cab of a nearby parked truck."

2013-05-20 - RV bursts into flame, fire spreads to two pickup trucks and mobile home, in Las Cruces (New Mexico):
http://www.lcsun-news.com/las_cruces-news/ci_23282829/rv-fire-damages-trucks-las-cruces-mobile-home
http://www.krwg.org/post/multi-vehicle-las-cruces-fire-under-investigation

Note: And that's why you might want to consider not parking your vehicles next to other vehicles, or next to your home. If they'd all been separated here, they'd still have two pickup trucks and an undamaged mobile home. Now they have no vehicles and a damaged mobile home. Of course, it could have been even worse, since there were no injuries or fatalities this time...

2013-05-20 - SUV bursts into flame near gas station in coastal York County (Virginia):
http://www.dailypress.com/news/breaking/dp-nws-york-car-fire-20130521,0,7148092.story?track=rss

2013-05-20 - Pickup truck and another vehicle burst into flame at 1:16 AM in Sprague (Washington), separate events:
http://www.khq.com/story/22300527/2-vehicle-fires-in-sprague-arson-investigation-underway

Note: Multiple fires erupting at around the same time in the same general area is what you'd expect to see as a flammable gas plume - hydrogen sulfide or methane or both - blows through an area. Was the second fire downwind of the first? I bet it was, but since the cops have no clue what's going on, they don't even know to ask such questions. And even when they do realize what's going on, this won't really be their concern. It's not a crime when atmospheric gases cause things to burn and/or explode, nor is it a crime when hydrogen sulfide knocks people dead...

2013-05-20 - Car bursts into flame at around 1 AM while parked in driveway at home in coastal Fort Myers (Florida):
http://www.nbc-2.com/story/22295144/car-found-on-fire-ar-fort-myers-home

Quote: "The state fire marshall began an investigation and is calling it unusual because it was a cold car that hadn't been driven in 24 hours."

Note: Vehicles need not have been driven recently in order to burst into flame now. Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper like battery cables and other wiring in vehicles. What planet has this guy been living on? I must've documented hundreds of fires like this in the past 15 months, maybe thousands. It's not unusual at all, not anymore. Also, Florida is downwind of the dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico, which are surely pluming hydrogen sulfide now...

Note: All the corpses being found dead in vehicles like the above three events: being inside a vehicle is basically like being outside if heat or AC is running or windows are rolled down. Even with no heat or AC running and windows rolled up, you're still more exposed to any hydrogen sulfide blowing around than you would be in a well-insulated and well-sealed home, simply because vehicles aren't very airtight...

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is being absorbed into tire rubber and possibly brake pads. Then when brakes are applied, the brake-friction burns hotter than normal (because hydrogen sulfide burns very hot). Then bad things can happen: tires ignite or explode, brakes burn out or ignite, fluid lines rupture, the entire vehicle goes up in flames, or all of the above. This problem affects massive vehicles the most - like large RVs, buses, tractor trailers, tanker trucks, dump trucks, etc - because they require more brake-friction to slow, and there is thus more chance this problem will manifest...

Note: This city is about 8 miles from the East Coast. Both of the above sinkhole events are the type that concern me the most: near oceanic coasts where there are large methane hydrate deposits. As those coastal deposits dissociate (melt), land subsidence appears inevitable, and there is a real possibility that the ground beneath large populated areas will sink and collapse. Entire urban areas could ultimately just slough off into the oceans. Where are all those mysterious empty 'ghost cities' in China? Well away from the coasts! Where are the major underground facilities in the United States? Colorado and Utah, well away from the coasts. Is that mere coincidence, or is that the result of planning by people who understand what's happening? That's a rhetorical question...

Note: They're connected to each other by general area and the atmosphere. And, say, a respiratory problem might just result from breathing a gas, like hydrogen sulfide. If they're only looking for pathogens and this is the result of a gas then they will never find anything. They should be looking to see if these people live in valleys or canyons or near bodies of water, if they sleep in basements, spend lots of time outdoors, that sort of thing. That area is near Lake Seminole and it's also only about 60 miles from - and downwind of - the Gulf of Mexico and its horrible dead zones, which are surely pluming hydrogen sulfide now...

  1. You need to get more exposure because you're too far off the beaten path. Were you ever able to do a recorded interview with Christina of Nuked Radio? I only listen to the shows that she uploads to YT so if you have already done an interview with her I have not yet heard it. Nothing like killer donkeys to break up the monotony of the 'boring been there done that' Pit Bulls!

    1. Hah, I think she forgot about me. Not really sweating it or anything. I mean, what I'm saying is the truth and that being so, it's only a matter of time before more people catch on, especially since it's their lives at stake here. And traffic rises every month, from countries all over the world, so I'd say that the Big Awakening is already under way now.

    2. I emailed her about something else early last month & she said that she was still planning on doing it but for the time being she was busy with the subject of Chernobyl. Now that the JJFH blog has been up for about a year &1/2 you have provided much more evidence so people will take it much more seriously

    3. Ah, okie doke! Heh, Chernobyl. That doom seems kinda quaint to me now. I'd gladly trade this doom in for 10 Chernobyls! In fact, this doom might very well CAUSE 10 Chernobyls, or more, as nuclear plants get blown up or lose power and cooling ability, or the ground along coasts dissolves beneath them.

    4. I agree with you & I also wondered about that because in comparison the problems caused the gases are infinitely worse & rapidly getting more severe. Judging from the increased intensity 2013 will most likely be the year that something major happens.

      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-coventry-warwickshire-22587985
      This was initially thought to be suspicious but police no longer suspect foul play, so I guess the guy just dropped dead there...

      And I thought this was an interesting read:

      http://www.earthfiles.com/news.php?ID=2087&category=Environment

      If this is true then I wonder if in some cases the H2S is coming out of the ground. Some natural gas ('Sour Gas') has a relatively high pecentage of H2S. Any thoughts?

      Delete
    3. It's definitely coming up from the ground in some cases. One of the events in the 'Hydrogen Sulfide Events' list is a story where H2S was detected in the ground near a school. The same is true of methane coming from the ground - in Pennsylvania, California and Australia so far.

      I don't think that's the main source though. I still think the oceans and seas and lakes are the primary source. One reason is that I think the scientists who wrote this document got it right about PAST extinction events:

      http://www.chicagocleanpower.org/ward.pdf

      But I have another reason too, though I can't provide a link, because I lost the images when a hard drive died on me. During the Japan quake, someone on another site posted about an unsecured FTP site in Japan that had tons of interesting NASA photos. So I downloaded an FTP client, logged in, set it to download *.* and went to bed. The next day I started looking through the images. A large number of them, going back at least a decade, showed, like, white tendrils in the oceans spreading around. I believe those were bacterial mats on the ocean floor, spreading along areas where heat was spreading upward from below, the same bacteria that produce H2S. They've been watching this problem spreading through the oceans - from orbit - for quite some time. There were many of these images; it was clearly important to them to watch those white tendrils. I see why now.

      Delete
    4. Also, those ancient bacteria and archaea that produce hydrogen sulfide - they eat biomatter, but they ALSO eat...methane. Which is what natural gas is, mainly. So I think all the fracking going on, digging up and pumping out as much natural gas as possible everywhere, that's to deprive those bacteria below GROUND of a ready supply of food. If they have food, and it's warm, moist and anoxic, they will breed like, well, bacteria. So we either frack that stuff out or those bacteria below ground may just turn natural gas into deadly and explosively flammable hydrogen sulfide. People don't like the resulting quakes and other problems, which is understandable. But I'm sure they'd like a bunch of deadly flammable hydrogen sulfide coming up from the ground around their homes a whole lot less. Is fracking environmentally unfriendly? Hell yes. But it's not as environmentally unfriendly as hydrogen sulfide, not by a long shot.

      Delete
    5. Now let me turn the world upside down. Methane, natural gas, coal, it's all going to burn. If we don't burn it and use it for energy then it will burn anyway, and we'd have not only gotten no use from the burning, the burning would probably be happening right now, uncontrolled, and we would quite possibly already all be dead. But if they KNEW this was going to happen, then the best thing possible would be to make out entire civilization revolve around burning up fossil fuels BEFORE Mother Earth does so to our detriment. Spread out over decades, the damage to the Earth would be far less than ALL that stuff burning uncontrolled in a compressed timeframe.

      So I think they already do have much better sources of energy. They haven't shared that technology solely to keep us burning up fossil fuels because if we had better technology, obviously we'd use that instead. And then we'd be sitting around getting incinerated (even more than we already are) when all the fossil fuels burned up in a short period of time.

      I have to wonder just how far back their knowledge of this event goes. I'm positive it goes back at least 15 years - when chemtrails got under way. I highly suspect it goes back to the early 1980s. But maybe it goes back even farther than that. We got started burning coal heavily in the 1800s. (Good thing we did too, or we'd be way more screwed than we already are.)

      In a normal world, the 'Green' movement would make sense, would be best for us. I'm a 'Green' guy myself. But if all the fossil fuels are going to burn up anyway, as appears to be the case, then we've actually done the Earth and its recovery time an enormous favor by burning all that stuff up over a period of time, rather than allowing it to burn uncontrolled on its own and totally destroy us, and slow the Earth's recovery by maybe millions of years.

    6. Thanks for the detailed replies. I know volcanoes also vent H2S, which is probably contributing. Over the years I have noticed an increase in reports of blue-green algae incidents in ponds and lakes around the UK, I don't know if they produce H2S as well?

      On the subject of past events, I find the Usselo Horizon of interest:
      Quote: "A thin layer rich in charcoal also occurs in the Late Pleistocene, the Alleroed interstadial, with a radiocarbon age of about 11.000 years, and dendro-dated at about 13.000 years. If the dinosaur extinction has become symbolic for the K-T massacre, that of the mammoth stands as a symbol of the end of the Ice Age. The horizon, 5 to 15 cms thick, has been found in at least ten countries, on four different continents: \the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Great-Britain, France, Poland, White Russia, Egypt, South Africa, India and Australia. It was first found in 1940 in the Netherlands, in a sandpit at Usselo near Enschede, only a few kilometers from the boundary with Germany, by Dutch archaeologist Cornelis Hijszeler, custodian and later director of the Ryks Museum Twente, Enschede."
      http://www.catastrophist.org/home/usselo-2002/

      Seems to indicate an almost global firestorm afflicted the planet, very recently in geological terms. I wonder if methane and/or H2s was involved. Around that time there appears to have been an increase in volcanic eruptions and a geomagnetic excursion.

      Delete
    7. I would not doubt that methane was involved in that event and that some significant burning occurred then, probably short-term. It couldn't have been too horrible or lasted too long, because we survived that, and there was no big mass extinction then. There was maybe a little H2S from volcanism then too (and volcanoes erupting may have caused the methane to dissociate then too, which is what I think is happening now).

      That's an interesting thing about H2S - it's a geologic gas AND it's a biogenic gas. I fear the bacterial generation the most because of bacterial growth rates. The gas kills stuff, the bacteria eats the dead stuff, which makes more bacteria, which makes more gas, which makes more dead stuff...and where does that stop? When there's been a massive exchange of biomass between oxygen-using life and that bacteria would be my guess, and then those bacteria run out of food and then THEY have a big die-off, and then things slooooowly recover. It took 30 million years to fully recover from the Permian-Triassic.

      I've noticed the uptick in blue-green algae events too. I think it is sort of related (and they produce a dangerous toxin themselves). I think we're seeing the blue-green algae events more simply because water temps are on the rise. Then that algae sucks the oxygen out of the water, and that opens the door for the anaerobic bacteria that produce hydrogen sulfide to expand their territory and start doing their thing. So when you start seeing the blue-green algae events, then the waters are probably heating up and at least beginning to go hypoxic and then anoxic and if that water isn't refreshed with oxygen then a 'dead zone' will eventually form, and hydrogen sulfide will start coming out of the water.

      The oceans and many seas and lakes will probably turn into fetid steamy stinky death factories, like giant sewers or landfills. That's probably why 95%+ of oceanic species died off in the Permian-Triassic.

      The Moon and Mars are looking more enticing than they ever did before!

    1. I know the feeling on the 'firebug' stories. Seems like every city in the United States now has a 'serial arsonist' running around torching things, or that's how the stories are played. Sometimes there IS an arsonist, to be sure. But there are SO MANY of those stories.

      Few people ever really see the pattern because news is so segmented now. In my city we see the news about the 'arsonists' here, but we don't hear that the same thing is happening in all the other cities and towns, and in each of those cities and towns, they hear about THEIR 'arson' news, but not anyone else's. It seems preposterous that ALL of these cities and towns now have serial arsonists running rampant THIS YEAR. If it were just one city - or five - then it'd be believable. But it's way more than that. At least provide a motive, a witness or some surveillance footage. Or, better yet, an arrest and a conviction. When they lack ANY of that, I am now highly skeptical.

      Also...danke! ;)
